MANIFESTO

High Times Manifesto

High Times is fueled by the simple belief that the cannabis movement should focus on the community. That’s why we believe our expansion efforts should come from those who will benefit most from our growth—our loyal High Times fans, cannabis enthusiasts, and early investors.

We also believe that owning stock shouldn’t only be for those with brokerage accounts. Through our stock offering, you can purchase shares of High Times for as little as $99 using your Credit Card or ACH and own your shares now before our planned listing on an exchange.

Opportunity

High Times The Cannabis Industry and Market Opportunity

When we took the reins of High Times, we saw the unique opportunity to take the iconic brand to the next level.

To get back to our roots as a cornerstone voice for the cannabis community, we’ve expanded our digital presence to build a strong following of nearly 10 million followers on our social media channels and over 150 million monthly impressions across our digital platforms.

As we’ve been building a digital empire, we’ve also been quietly creating a robust music festival brand across the US and around the world, expecting 20 events globally next year. Our iconic Cannabis Cup festivals offer the ultimate cannabis experience, connecting the community at all corners and partnering with world-class performers from every genre.

Cannabis connects people across generations, cultures, and demographics—and High Times is the bridge that brings the community together under one roof. With humble beginnings in 1974, we’ve traversed a tough landscape.

Now, we’re proud of the High Times name and the brand it represents, and we want you to take part in our success.

Expanding Legalization of Cannabis

We believe the High Times brand carries strong economic prospects and opportunity in the rapidly expanding cannabis markets.

Momentum is building in the United States, as support for marijuana legalization is building, and the list of legal states is growing. The cannabis industry is:

High Times Moving Forward

Events Graph

High Times’ vision is to continue representing the cannabis community, in part by cultivating the ultimate cannabis experience.

One part of that strategy is aggressively expanding our Cannabis Cup festivals across the United States and around the world as legalization spreads.

We’re expecting to host ten festivals by the end of the year, and projecting more than 20 events in 2019.

Another part of that strategy is building on our strong authority and presence online to shape how cannabis is seen and experienced around the world. There is such a rich culture with cannabis, and as this plant goes mainstream it will be important to maintain its roots.

Our domain authority and SEO ranking with HighTimes.com and 420.com puts us in position to become a leading provider of cannabis content, and leading seller of cannabis products.

*Note: we do not intend to offer or sell cannabis on HighTimes.com or 420.com.

Equity Crowdfunding

  • What is the Jobs Act?

    The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama on April 5, 2012, to encourage funding of small businesses by easing various securities regulations. The JOBS Act required the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to adopt rules to implement a new exemption that would allow businesses to accept contributions from private individuals without making an initial public offering.
  • What is Regulation A+ equity crowdfunding?

    In June 2015, the final "Regulation A+" rules under Title IV of the JOBS Act became effective, after approval by the SEC, paving the way for companies like High Times to solicit their raise of up to $50 million from both accredited and non-accredited investors.
  • What does it mean that the SEC has qualified this offering?

    "The SEC has qualified this offering" means the SEC has permitted Hightimes Holding Corp (High Times) to offer for sale the securities described in the offering circular to investors such as you. The SEC is not judging the merits, accuracy, or completeness of the offering and information in the offering circular. Rather, the SEC is merely ensuring Hightime Holding Corp. has met federal legal disclosure and regulatory requirements necessary to make these shares available to you.
  • Who can invest in a Regulation A+ offering?

    Anyone, accredited and non-accredited investors alike, are eligible to purchase securities in a Regulation A+ offering.

    An accredited investor is an individual who makes over $200,000 per year ($300,000 if combined with a spouse) or who has a net worth of $1 million or more, excluding their primary residence. A non-accredited investor is anyone who does not meet the net worth requirements for an accredited investor.
  • How much money can I invest in a Regulation A+ offering?

    Non-accredited investors can invest up to 10% of the greater of their annual income or net worth. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
